"This album Dance of the Universe is a full-fledged professional affair from beginning to end...thoroughly delightful, with a very charming, lighthearted air to it. Strongly recommended."
I had just finished recording with Charles McPherson on his Freebop record. We recorded it in L.A. with New York record producer Don Schlitten for the Xanadu label . Don liked what I was up to so he signed me to a four album deal. I gathered a group of my jazz heroes, we fought the traffic up to L.A., and spent the day recording a set of my original tunes. On this record check out the song Avenues (sort of a Coltrane Giant Steps kind of thing). Mike Wofford lifts off on his incredible piano solo. This alone is worth the price of admission!
